Description

General description

Uridine is a pyrimidine nucleoside which is crucial for the synthesis of RNA and membranes. It helps in normal cell function and growth by forming pyrimidine nucleotide -lipid conjugates.

Application

Uridine has been used to study the functional complementation of nucleoside hydrolase from a protozoan parasite and mammalian uridine phosphorylase on URH1 (uridine hydrolase) of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
It has been used to check the effect of chronic uridine application on liver metabolism in mice.
